Contemporary tax practice is about more than putting numbers in little boxes. Persons in senior positions in a tax preparation function must know both how to find correct answers and why it’s important to do so. This program offers advanced level training for both. Efficient and effective tax research methods and an understanding of what constitutes “substantial authority” come first, along with an explanation of how to find and evaluate various sources. That done, we move on to the why. Treasury regulations, AICPA professional standards, and preparer penalties in the Internal Revenue Code demand that you employ “due diligence” in your tax practice. Anything less exposes you to censure, monetary penalties, and possible loss of privilege or credential.
